Details

In bug 522115 we added (amongst other things) a make build_symbols step on Leak & Bloat builds.

We did this so we could get symbols on crashes when they occur.

As our Leak & Bloat builds are normally quite stable, we need to balance the time of doing the build_symbols step (which gozer said could be up to 20 minutes) with the value of having them.

The follow suggestions have been made so far:

1) Disable build_symbols step when we don't need it, make it easily to re-enable.
2) Reduce the time of make build_symbols for dep builds by not regenerating all of the symbols for unchanged libraries.

There is nothing left to do, we can keep things the way they are and live with make buildsymbols
